O'Connor & Son Funeral Home, Louis DeAngelis, 94; taught By Theresa C. Sanchez GLOBE CORRESPONDENT The son of Italian immigrants and the first in his family to graduate from college, Louis G. DeAngelis dedicated his life to the pursuit of knowledge. From the moment he started teaching at Somerville High School in 1938 to the day he retired 42 years later, he never lost sight of his life's mission to help others succeed academically. "He was very much a full-time, all-time teacher," said his son Daniel L. of Beverly. "I think what he liked most about teaching was he felt he had an influence on his students. He definitely felt he made an impact." Mr. DeAngelis died June 25 at Newton-Wellesley Hospital in Newton after a brief illness. He was 94 and had lived in Hamilton for the past 56 years. Born in Boston, he was the oldest of five. Raised in Somerville, he was a "double Eagle," a graduate of Boston College High School, in 1928, and of Boston College. . Initially interested in medicine, Mr. DeAngelis changed his concentration of study to the romance languages and graduated from BC four years later with a bachelor's degree. He later received a master's degree in education from BC. After completing his undergraduate studies, Mr. DeAngelis worked for a few years as an orderly at Massachusetts General Hospital. There he met Mary Anne Ev-erard; the couple married in 1938 at St. Peter's Church in Cambridge. Because he enjoyed school so much as a student, he decided to spend his life teaching others, Daniel DeAngelis said. Mr. DeAngelis began teaching Dick Dietz; catcher was an All-Star ASSOCIATED PRESS CLAYTON, Ga. - Former All-Star catcher Dick Dietz, involved with Don Drysdale in one of baseball's most disputed plays in the late 1960s, died Tuesday from a heart attack. He was 63. Mr. Dietz hit .261 with 66 home runs and 301 RBIs from 1966 to 1973, mostly with the San Francisco Giants. He finished his career with Los Angeles and Atlanta. His best season was 1970, when he hit .300 with 36 doubles, 22 home runs, and 107 RBIs, along with 109 walks. He was an All-Star that season, and his lead-off homer in the ninth inning against Catfish Hunter started a three-run rally that tied the game the National League won in the 12th when Pete Rose ran over catcher Ray Fosse to score the winning run. Mr. Dietz probably was better known, however, for what happened at Dodger Stadium on May 31, 1968. Drysdale was in the midst of setting a Major League record of Romney takes aim with State workers' benefit said eyed By Scott S. Greenberger GLOBE STAFF Governor Mitt Romney will veto a $15 million reduction in state workers' healthcare payments and $4 million that would go to a pri-ate firm to market Massachusetts to foreign visitors, both items that lawmakers placed in the $23.9 billion state budget, according to senior administration officials. Romney plans to excise other parts of the fiscal 2006 budget, but the officials said that because the Legislature's budget isn't much different from the governor's own proposal, he would use his veto pen sparingly. With an overwhelming majority in both the House and the Senate, Democratic lawmakers generally overrule Romney on their priorities. Last year, Romney vetoed a total of $108.5 million in spending, and legislators restored $40 million.of it. The Romney officials, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, declined to say what Romney will do about a 70 percent increase in spending on the Governor's Commission on Gay and Lesbian Youth. That increase, to $425,000 Obituaries I I " " I -. - - LJ a L LOUIS G. DEANGELIS at Somerville High School because it was geographically convenient. The walks to work turned into an hourlong commute when his family moved to Hamilton. Having never become a licensed driver, he relied on public transportation and rides from family and friends. Standing 5 feet 5 inches, Mr. DeAngelis was a shy man outside school, but when surrounded by the walls of his classroom he commanded attention. "His enthusiasm for the subject matter propelled him to overcome whatever shyness he had," said his daughter Eileen M. of South Hamilton. , Outfitted in his signature suit and tie, Mr. DeAngelis provided his students with a simple road map for success. He believed that nobody needed to fail, his daughter said, and vowed that if students came to him for help after school, then they would pass and they did. "He was an old-school teacher," said a former student, Anthony Most of Dick Dietz's career was 58 scoreless innings and bidding for his fifth straight shutout when the Giants loaded the bases with no outs in the ninth inning. Mr. Dietz came up and was hit in the elbow by a 2-2 pitch from the future Los Angeles Hall of Famer. But before Mr. Dietz could take his base and force home a run that would break Drysdale's streak, plate umpire Harry Wen-delstedt ruled that Mr. Dietz did not try to get out of the way of the ball. "He stood there like a post," former Giants teammate Ron Hunt from $250,000, has sparked the ire of a group that opposes gay rights and it presents a quandary for Romney as he mulls a presidential bid. "If the governor does have national aspirations, the rest of the country doesn't buy this stuff," said Brian Camenker, director of the Article 8 Alliance. "The governor has to decide where he stands on some of these issues." The commission, created by Governor William F. Weld in 1992, is supposed to help prevent teen suicides and combat harassment of gay and lesbian youths. In talking about his opposition to gay marriage around the country, Romney has been careful to note that he does not condone discrimination against gays and lesbians. Romncy's veto of the $15 million to reduce healthcare payments by state employees is expected to be one of the largest subtractions he will make today. The state used to cover 85 percent of all state workers' health insurance premiums, but during the depths of the fiscal crisis several years ago it replaced that arrangement with a tiered system. Under the current rules, the state's contribution ranges from 75 percent to 85 percent, depending on the worker's salary and date of hiring. 7 , ' If (A Kt ) 1 ' ' t rTw' OTHER OBITUARIES Page C13 for 42 years Accardi of Wilmington. "He taught us to immerse ourselves in the subject, which in my case was first-year Italian. He cared very much about his students." During his tenure at Somerville High, Mr. DeAngelis taught a variety of subjects, including Italian, Spanish, Latin, English, biology, geography, and business law. An avid photographer, he was an adviser for the Photography Club and worked in the audiovisual department. He also was head of the Italian Club. Mr. DeAngelis mentored many student teachers and was given the opportunity to take summer courses at various institutions of higher learning, including Middle-bury College, Emmanuel College, and Harvard College. Outside his career, he considered his family his greatest accomplishment, said his son. "He was never the sort to stand out in the crowd. He just went about and did his job, shying away from any recognition," Daniel DeAngelis said. "At the end of the day, he would just consider himself an average person fortunate to have the family he had." In addition to his wife, son, and daughter, Mr. DeAngelis leaves four other sons, George E. of Norfolk, Va., Leo R. of Mount Prospect, 111., Richard S. of New York, and Edward J. of Danvers; another daughter, Jane T. of South Hamilton; a sister, Adeline DeAngelis of Melrose; 19 grandchildren, and eight great-grandchildren. A funeral Mass will be said today at 11 a.m. in St. John the Evangelist Church in Beverly. Burial will follow in Hamilton Cemetery in Hamilton.

The Giants loudly argued the call, but Mr. Dietz returned to the plate with a full count and hit a shallow fly ball that was not deep enough to score a run. Drysdale retired the next two batters to finish off the shutout and extend his string to 45 scoreless innings. Hunt, who holds the modern season record for being hit by pitches, remembered that Wendel-stedt made his call right aWay. veto pen The change is set to expire at the end of this year, however. The Legislature wants to return to the old system, as planned, but Romney says that is not fiscally prudent. Keeping the current system would save the state $15 million. "Given the difficult long-term fiscal problems facing the state and what employees are being asked to do in the private sector, I think it's fair to go up to the 20 percent to 25 percent range," said Michael J. Widmer of the Massachusetts Taxpayers Foundation, a business-funded nonprofit that studies taxes and government spending. Romney also plans to veto $4 million the Legislature wanted to steer to the Massachusetts International Marketing Partnership Inc., a new nonprofit organization headed by former state travel official William H. MacDougall, to market the state to international tourists. The contract and the proposed new spending have outraged officials at the Massachusetts Office of Travel and Tourism, who say a competing agency would simply duplicate their efforts.
